Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.


Welcome to Harris Primary Academy Shortlands and thank you for visiting our website. 

Our Academy opened in September 2014 in order to provide high quality primary places for local families.  We believe that every child is unique and that each deserves the opportunity to be happy, feel valued and experience success.

We are part of a Federation of schools with an established track record in Bromley and across London.  The Harris Federation Primary Team provides a great deal of support to our staff, helping give pupils the highest quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our ethos at the Academy is that all children can achieve:  it is our job as educators to do everything possible to enable this to happen.  We are delighted to be in a brand new school building , which  is a bright, modern and welcoming place for our children.

We are fortunate to have a strong and committed partnership with our parent body, a tradition we want to continue as the Academy grows and develops.  If you are considering Harris Primary Academy Shortlands, please do visit us at one of our open days – the dates will be on this website – and make the time to come and say hello.
